Chicago White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie (foot) has been dealing wtih a plantar fasciitis issue this spring, manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday, March 24.
Fantasy Tip: Gillaspie's projected everyday at-bats and potential help in batting average -- .282 last season -- are his best fantasy assets. He added 15 pounds of muscle in the offseason which could help his power, though, and he is in his offensive prime at 27, too. Still, Gillaspie is nothing more than a late-round option in deep mixed leagues and AL-only formats.

Chicago White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie added 15 pounds of muscle and altered his offseason workout schedule to combat the late-season slides he has experienced the past two years. He's a .305 hitter in April and May, a .261 hitter in June and July and a .223 hitter over August and September.
Fantasy Tip: Gillaspie is best left to the late rounds in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. He did finish last season with a helpful .282 batting average, though, and there is potential for him to improve his counting stats in 2015. At 27, he is in his offensive prime, too.

Chicago White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie has spent the last two years as the team's starting third baseman, but this year he'll likely serve in a platoon role with INF Emilio Bonifacio. Gillaspie hit a career-high .282 last season, but he struggled against lefties (.221/.248/.317) compared to .300/.360/.444 against right-handers. Bonifacio is much better from the right side while facing lefties. Gillaspie is willing to fill whatever role the team needs, and he gained roughly 15 pounds in the offseason so he can be more of a power threat.

Chicago White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie has a six-game hitting streak, slashing .526/.571./1.211. He has 10 hits, nine runs, three home runs and five RBIs during the streak. On the season, Gillaspie has a .326/.377/.484 line.
Fantasy Tip: Obviously, the recent offensive outburst is unsustainable, but Gillaspie has hit for a solid slash line all season. He is worth a flier in deep leagues, if you need help at third base.

Gillaspie had X-rays on the knee that showed no break.
